Re: Tube rolling the Baby Black Beauty or CF amps

I have also had some time to compare the baby black to the cherry's running the Kt 150. Going into this I thought they would sound similar but they really don't. The smaller amp sounds much more solid state to me with tight punchy bass and a nice midrange. The big amps have more tube magic to them w...

Re: Tube rolling the Baby Black Beauty or CF amps

That is great to know on the 10m, saves a lot of $$$ trying them out. Will try and run down some ge 5751 5 stars and may look into some 60's tungscram 12ax7's.

Re: Tube rolling the Baby Black Beauty or CF amps

The RCA are still reasonably priced unlike the Mullards. I really want to try some 10m's since they are supposed to be the best. The Siemens are also on my short list. Also do you run a pre amp just go straight from source to the amp?

Finally found a black magic amp this week! These things are hard to come by these days. Was wondering what everybody
is running tube wise since it has been almost three years since the last post.

Re: Tube pre on ebay

My feeling is that since all recorded music has been through several opamps (probably several hundred!) and probably DSP(A/D and D/A a few times, or even *started* from digital!), there's no reason to eschew a little more in my living room. Especially if it'll probably improve the sound, or at leas...

Re: Conversation with Bob Carver

I know of two other people that purchased the raven 350 and opted for the 120's. I love the 150's in mine, to each their own.

Re: Christmas Q&A with Bob

I am kinda supprised that he has not started making the baby black beauty amp again that was a hit. Did he mention anything about making a matching pre amp for his current products?

Re: Awesome Ebay find..All original C9 with everything inclu

Nice pick up! Looking At the speaker set up picks how many people do you know who use the wrong set up? A couple months ago I was reading a placement article and it also emphasized setting up full range speakers in the near field, so I tried it and really liked it. Supposedly it eliminates your list...
